Introducing index.dev


– tags: praxpow

Index-dot-dev is a small Sinatra app to show what’s in your ~/.pow or ~/.prax folder.

Installing it is pretty easy. Just clone the git repository, run bundle install, and link the directory to your local Pow or Prax folder.

You can then see all your dot-dev domains on index.dev in a nice responsive grid that looks a bit like chrome://apps/.

I took special care to keep subdomains together. admin.example.dev will sit right next to www.example.dev and example.dev.

Any PNG or JPEG in ~/.pow/_icons or ~/.prax/_icons that has the same name as your dot-dev domain will be used as the app-icon. A subdomain without an icon will inherit the icon from its parent domain. You may also choose to use the hidden subdirectory .icons instead of _icons.
